Default Travel/Medical Insurance for J1 Visa

hi there,

I am due to travel out to USA in August on a J1 visa and am getting a little confused with medical and travel insurance. Am I able to just get long-term travel insurance from a UK insurance provider? It seems to state adequate travel insurance, but what is that.

I understand the amount of cover required ($50,000 etc) but am not sure about the section on having insurance underwritten.

Thank you in advance for your help

Rebecca

I used long term travel insurance when I went to the US on a J-1, but I took out $500,000 rather than $50,000. Have you seen how much medical costs can be here?

Travel Insurance includes Medical Insurance.

$500k is more like it, that would be a minimum.

Hi, thanks for the reponses. I had actually meant $500,000, glad I didn't make the mistake when buying insurance!
